“Beautiful view, great trails & don't miss out on the nature center.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

Just BEAUTIFUL! Tranquil, relaxing and quite romantic! The trails were great to just enjoy such a gorgeous piece of nature. We plan to bring the kids back to the nature center. They'll love it.

“One night a year the heavens are in motion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2010

In the early morning hours of every August 13, this is where meteor watchers gather for one of the most spectacular celestial shows outside of the aurora borealis, It's the Perseid meteor shower. Newport is one of the darkest spots around, and the sky is incredible on any cloudless night, but imagine up to 60 meteors PER HOUR streaking across the heavens, Just go to the little parking area near Lake Michigan after midnight. Bring a blanket or lawn chair, plus bug repellent. And prepare to be amazed!

“Only if you are into backcountry camping and isolation.............”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2008

I am not sure how to describe Newport State Park. It is a great park for backcountry or walkin camping. We were not told this at the office when getting our daily pass. We wanted to see camping sites easily accessible with those of us with campers. She said nothing, just gave us a wave of her hand toward the "campsites." Well, they got our $10 easily! We saw very few people there; the beach was nice-very isolated, if that is what you are looking for. Not much else there, except some hiking, which we did not partake in. Black flies and mosquitos were out in force, but they had much rain of late. I believe the front office staff (mostly teenagers) need better training.
